Words for Wednesday Soul Mate?

Words for Wednesday

Delores from ’Under The Porch Light’ offers six words as a writing prompt – crystallize, morbid, fragrance, cling, instant, blueprint. Why not visit her and see what other writing has been prompted?

Soul Mate?

It was a blueprint for disaster. She should have known that from the beginning. For an instant, when he said he wanted to buy her some perfume, she found herself clinging to the hope that this time he would buy something she liked. Short of writing a list of her favourite fragrances or, worse, buying one herself and giving it to him to give to her, she could think of no way of persuading him towards the scents she favoured.

Never the most cheerful of companions, he was becoming daily more morbid and sadly she realised that their relationship was never going to crystallize into the long-term partnership she had envisaged. She would have to look elsewhere for her soul mate.

  1. I love when people can do this, make stories out of a predetermined set of words.

    Not sure I could.

    Well done!

  5. Great use of the words.....and she's right, by the way, if he can't figure out what perfume she likes he's not for her lol.

  6. I guess it just wasn't to be!!

    If he can't mind read the right perfume scent, he definitely must be useless. LOL.

  8. A blueprint for disaster...that's a little sad, but a good story just the same. Soul mates are so hard to come by. Drop in tomorrow and read mine.

  9. Sweet! Well, maybe not sweet, but nice writing. I like the idea of the perfume, that she might have to buy it to give to him to give to her. That says something about both of them at the same time. Great work.
